‘Hitman’ is “on hiatus” as developer focuses on James Bond recreation

IO Interactive has shared that any “major” new Hitman recreation is on “a little bit of a hiatus,” because the studio focuses on creating its upcoming James Bond recreation.

Speaking to Eurogamer, Christian Elverdam – the co-owner of IO Interactive and its chief artistic officer – instructed that followers could also be stored ready for one more Hitman recreation.

“Right now a major, major new Hitman game: that’s a little bit on hiatus as we’re building another agent fantasy that’s also taking up a lot of our time,” stated Elverdam. “But obviously we’ll come back to beloved Agent 47. He’s still very much in the heart of this company.”

Elverdam’s “agent fantasy” remark is a reference to a James Bond recreation presently in growth at IO Interactive, which is presently going by Project 007 as a working title.

Project 007 was introduced in 2020, and can inform an origin story for James Bond that sees the particular agent incomes his 00 rank, which within the movies and Ian Fleming novels is a license to kill throughout missions.

In 2021, IO Interactive confirmed that Project 007 will inform “a completely original story” and provides Bond a brand new look.

“[It] was very important for us that it wasn’t a movie adaptation. So, it wasn’t a game about… a specific movie, where the story has already been told,” defined IO Interactive CEO Hakan Abrak. “Every Bond kind of defines a generation and it’s amazing how they kept reinventing themselves over so many years.”

The recreation was “already in full swing” at IO Interactive by 2021, and Abrak individually shared that the studio’s pitch “went straight to the guts of Barbara Broccoli herself“.

In different gaming information, the developer behind Star Citizen has apologised for a “super rough start” to its newest replace.
